The David Bickerton Memorial Fund, established in 1995 to provide emergency relief for families facing desperate times. The fund is managed by CDARS. During David's time working alongside Dorothea at Community Drug Helpline, now CDARS, he frequently used his own money to support families in crisis. The fund set up in his name continues to operate today with the same benevolent mission.
